Its sad because alot of people tell me they want to help and foster but yet when I ask if they can foster a senior they tell me they can't because she is so old and they can't bear the thought of her passing. But yet people don't realize she is a healthy dog for one and that she still has alot of life in her. There are no guarantees how long a dogs life will last at any age. By adopting a senior you are making a strong statement about compassion and the value of all life at any age. You are setting a wonderful example for your children and giving them life lessons that will be forever valuable. Yes a puppy has her whole life ahead of her, but so does a senior dog. You can give that senior dog the best years of his life.
I just wish people could see that
